BILBI: Assessing the consequences of change for biodiversity at fine spatial resolution globally

BILBI uses best available biological and environmental data, modelling and high performance computing to assess biodiversity change at fine spatial resolution across the global land surface.

The challenge

To protect and conserve biodiversity we need information about how biodiversity has changed from the past to the present. We also need to be able to predict how it will change in response to human activities and a changing climate.

The solution

A modelling and prediction tool for biodiversity.
